I have been working at C&S Wholesale Grocers full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent co-workers, somewhat flexible work schedule, great culture of giving back to the community in many ways.

Cons

Expect Procurement personnel to be "on" 24-7-365. Many feel like the management doesnt care about them as a person. Little opportunities for advancement unless you are one of their "favorites"

Advice to Management

Treat everyone the same, no favorites.

    I worked at C&S Wholesale Grocers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting business, and C&S seems to excel in it. When I was there the employment seemed reliable and the business was growing, which was pretty remarkable in the economic conditions at the time.

    Cons

    Unsatisfying and repetitive job with little chance for advancement. Poor training and little autonomy. The buying department had high turnover.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at C&S Wholesale Grocers full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is not one pro about this company or managers.

    Cons

    Working 70+ hours/week is the norm, not the exception.
    They make record profits yet don't give raises.
    The morale is the worst.
    Staff are encouraged to throw each other under the bus
    You are told to lie and do illegal things

    Advice to Management

    If I believed management would do anything, I'd offer advice but management has made it very clear they don't want to hear anything.
